Brisbane - Sydney - San Francisco - Vancouver
After about 18 hours of flying we finally arrived in Vancouver. Flew with United Airlines which was fine except it is surprising that an international airline these days does not have entertainment screens on the back of the seat. Still, the movies they showed were OK and as usual none of us got very much sleep so by the time we got to our hotel we were fairly exhausted. However, it was too early to go to bed so we wandered downtown to look at some of the sights and grab some tea. As it is still summer it stays light until about 9pm.
The Comfort Inn is nice and central - fairly basic but had the most comfortable beds. It could have been noisy as our room is right about an Irish pub but we didn't hear a sound. The same Irish pub serves a continental breakfast as part of the room rate so all in all it was good.
